hurt the housing market? >> it will have an impact. as they negotiate this fiscal cliff one of the things that is going to be on the table is the mortgage deduction. why? only 26% of filers actually claim the mortgage deduction so it may play well with lawmakers because they might figure it is not that big of a chunk. however, it can have a big impact. i think it is vital for first time home buyers. i hope they keep it in place. it is probably a better idea to take a look at it and say if we want to do something with it maybe sunset it after five years. >> you think a lot of people take that into account in terms of affordablity? >> yes they do. the mortgage deduction is an important way for people to reconcile what this would be compared to a rent. you can increase your dependents and get that difference every week within your paycheck. you don't have to wait until the end of the year to get a return. you can get it right away. >> what does it say about this market when we have record low mortgage rates. financing has never been cheaper for many parts of the economy? yet here you
